Helm Kent is bright and full of character, located on the first floor in a small complex of four properties created from a traditional Lakeland stone barn at Helm Farm on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere. Accessed via a set of external stone steps it sleeps four people in two light bedrooms and has a cosy living-dining area with open fire and beautiful views over the shared gardens to the fields and fells beyond. The rooms all have vaulted ceilings with exposed beams providing plenty of character, light and space. Lovely comfortable Helm Kent will draw you in and welcome you home at the end of a busy day. Outside there is a shared garden with lawns and seating areas plus a barbeque area, perfect for long lazy summer evenings.

Located in a rural position amongst woods and fields Helm Kent is perfectly located for exploring the local area. Being just a mile outside the centre of Bowness means easy access to all the amenities Bowness and Windermere have to offer but also peace and quiet while you relax and unwind. With a wide variety of shops, cafes and restaurants as well as great access to the lake shore, Bowness is the bustling gateway to Windermere lake and the many attractions surrounding it. A regular steamer service crosses the lake all year round making access to Ambleside, Wray, Lakeside and Brockhole a pleasure as well as providing stunning views on the way.

Helm Kent offers picturesque and peaceful walks right from the door as well as having good access by bus from Bowness or by car to more challenging walks over the local fells. Keen cyclists will be spoilt for choice with a variety of local on or off-road routes to try depending on the level of challenge required. The Bowness area is very family friendly with plenty of short low level walks to explore. There is good access to the lake with all sorts of boats available to hire or just spend time on the shore enjoying the views. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the cast of Beatrix Potter’s books at Beatrix Potter World and not far away Fell Foot Park and Brockhole offer both formal and informal play areas perfect for wearing out the younger members of the family! Bowness and Windermere are well connected to the rest of the area by boat, bus and car so the whole area will open out before you.

Helm Kent is a part of Helm Farm, which has three other cottages available for letting. Helm EdenHelm Mint, Helm Lune and Helm Kent can be booked together to accommodate 15 people in total.
